SAILOR SART II is used to locate a survival craft or distressed vessel by creating a series of dots on a rescuing ship’s radar display. When in standby mode the SAILOR SART II is triggered by any X-band radar within a range of approximately 8 nautical miles. The SAILOR SART II automatically transmits a response signal which is swept across the complete radar frequency band, and clearly identifies the survival craft.
The signal is made up of a stream of 12 in-line dots. At some point in each sweep, the SAILOR SART II frequency will match that of the interrogating radar and will produce a response on the radar display, thus a line of 12 dots equally spaced by about 0.64 nautical mile will be shown. Once activated, the SAILOR SART II will remain in standby mode for over 96 hours.
A SART will only respond to 9 GHz X-band (3 cm wavelength) radar. It will not be seen on S-band (10 cm) or other radar.
